I have had 2 Pittosporum tennuifolium 'Tom Thumb for 3 years now. They are growing underneath a beech tree. Whilst they look healthy they don't seem to be growing. Shall I move them and if so is it ok to do it now. Thankyou



These plants only reach 3 feet anyway, so as long as you're not expecting them to get larger than that, then you can move them if you wish, but best done in mid to late September, or early next Spring.

Thanks Bamboo. I have just measured them and they are only about 12/18 in high. So I think I will move them in Spring.
